test May miss those infected Washington a tests commonly used to Check for the aids virus May fail to detect Many people who actually Are infected a study suggested today scientists at Emory University in Atlanta tested the blood of 165 people who had tested negative for the human immunodeficiency virus or his which causes aids and found that 30 actually were infected with the virus or Tab Ansari the Emory professor who supervised the study said tuesday that his team used a new Type of test to find his antibodies in blood samples that the routine Laboratory tests had said were disease free All of the ones that they found positive we found positive in our said Ansari but in addition there were quite a few that were negative in their assay that were picked up As positive in our Ansari said the Experiment began with 165 blood serum samples that were tested using Elisa or enzyme linked immune sorbet assay the aids test most commonly used in hospitals and clinics the samples then were additionally tested using the Western blot assay a test routinely used to confirm the Elisa finding All of the samples tested in this traditional Way were found negative for the his virus according to the study which was distributed by the National Academy of sciences meanwhile unlabelled blood from the same samples along with blood specimens from healthy volunteers were provided to Ansari and his team he said his teamed not know which samples came from a High risk Popula Tion mostly drug users and which came from healthy volunteers the specimens All were subjected to a test called the pokeweed Mit Ogen assay a proce Dure that forces specialized cells in the blood to expel antibodies into the blood serum the serum then was tested using the Elisa and Western blot assays thirty or 18 percent of the samples were found to contain antibodies to the his virus an indication of infection and each of these 30 samples were previously found by the Elisa and Western blot tests to be free of virus antibodies Ansari said the routine tests now commonly used will give positive results Only if his antibodies Are detected in the blood serum he said the pokeweed Mit Ogen assay shows that there May be infected people who do not develop antibodies to the aids virus for some reason there Are blood cells that have the antibody but do not secrete said Ansari he said the Elisa and Western blot tests would not be Able to detect the antibodies Ansari said enough blood remained in 26 of the 30 test samples to conduct an even More sensitive assay the polymerase Chain reaction the researcher said this final test confirmed the findings of the pokeweed Mit Ogen assay in 21 of the 26 samples tested a National institutes of health researcher who asked not to be named said a saris study is interesting tand confirms the suggestions of other researchers that people can be latently infected and not test positive for the the researcher said the study shows that there Are still gaps of understanding that must be filled to thoroughly understand How the his virus causes infection Ansari said his study should not be interpreted to mean that blood for transfusion which is tested with the Elisa assay is unsafe he said All of the blood that tested positive in his study came from people at very High risk for his who would be excluded from donating blood for transfusion the study is published in the proceedings of the National Academy of sciences which officials at the Academy said were to be distributed today report warns of economic pain in Eastern european nations
